REQUIREMENTS
1. Research a disease process using two scientific articles from nursing journals.
2. Develop a teaching brochure which could be given to a client who is newly diagnosed with this
disease to help them understand the signs and symptoms, disease process, and management
approaches.
Sections to include:
 Introduction
 Subjective Findings
 Objective Findings
 Description of Disease (brief)
 Risk Factors/Causes
 Management
 Medications (Note: You have not taken your pharmacology course yet, so please do
not focus on medication treatment. Under this section please add only one sentence
“Your practitioner may recommend over the counter medications or prescription
medications to treat your disease.” But, please do not go into any additional detail.)
 Conclusion
3. Include at least one image and up to three images that would help the client understand classic
symptoms of the disease process. This picture should assist the class in better understanding the
disease process.
4. Include your references on the back of the brochure in APA format.
5. Submit your brochure on time to the Dropbox (I will not accept emailed copies). Be sure to save the
electronic file with your last name and first initial and the diagnosis you are describing.

PREPARING THE BROCHURE


1. Identify appropriate articles for review.
2. Begin to search for images in your textbook or online (make sure you reference your source).
3. Begin the project as soon as possible, allowing yourself plenty of time to make it look good. This
means the brochure should be print ready. I expect these to look professional which means you need
to spend some time on it.
